Medical Cupping

Medical cupping is a therapy using glass cups and a flame to create a vacuum or suction on the skin. Cupping has developed over time with early written records going back to 28 AD. It started with the use of animal horns, then bamboo cups and finally to glass cups. We use glass and silicone cups.

  • Stationary cup: The cup is vacuumed to a specific acupressure point or muscle knots and left on for 5-10 minutes.
  • Walking cup: The cup is vacuumed to certain acupressure points or muscle knots and is then moved up and down a meridian or across a muscle fiber, all while still attached to the skin.
  • Flying cup: The cup is vacuumed to certain point or knots and is then quickly removed and replaced several times on the same area in order to relieve muscle tension and release body toxins.

It's a way of 'clearing the drain.' Massage can release and move toxins but if there is significant build up massage is not enough.

Traditional Chinese Medicine states it will warm the meridians, dispels stagnation and it increases as well as promotes the flow of Qi and blood.
